Score. Mine are still sitting on the trailer. They are 6-10 feet long and are a wee bit heavy to move?

hang10... Thanks for the vote of confidence!

Andy, these were all seasoned well. The pine looks like it's been dry for 6 months or more with bark on. There's some heavy ones, but maybe half the weight they should be. Lots of work to get them prepped... Got 'em debarked but I still have to get the knots out and get them sanded down. Free wood is nice, but there's a lot of work to get them ready.

Get a hand truck if you don't have one already... I use it constantly to move big logs around.

Thanks Watango! I'm too lazy to make drinks at home, and why bother when you have a bar that makes them so good.

A little downtime before the Hot Rod Hula Hop this weekend, so I grabbed one of the new logs to have a little fun with it. Still some more to do yet... 28" H x 8" W. White Pine.

Badd Tiki, Atomic Mess and Grog... thanks guys!

Don't know if it gets any easier... they just take less time to carve.

Having a perfect log to work with helps a lot, and this one just about was.

Cool Cannibal piece Dave!

At the risk of sounding like a complete dope, I didn't know you did fully three dimensional pieces! I'm more familiar with your incredible wall-hanging pieces that fully express three dimensions while only, in fact, using just two ... looks awesome as usual, though!

Love all your PNG pieces...

...by the way, stop being so brilliant, you're making the rest of us look bad...

...nah, keep up the great work!!!!

Eric, thanks for the compliment! Much appreciated!

No worries, I don't carve logs that much anymore. Harder to travel to shows with, and they don't sell like they used to. I do a few each year now though.

When I started this whole thing years ago, thats all I did was logs, but they just don't fit in suitcases as easy as the wall hangings!

Again, thanks for the kind compliment on the wall hangings!

I'll do my best to keep on keeping on, and I'm a big fan of your inspiring work... love how your subject matter and materials are always changing!
